Did you know that Brussels sprouts are actually a food that helps you lose weight?  It is.  They are low on the glycemic index and have more fiber than other vegetables.  They are filled with antioxidants.

I know a lot of people don’t really like them, but I love them and this is a great recipe that adds in some other great flavors.  This recipe is also gluten free. Cranberries are my favorite.  I have an easy cranberry sauce recipe and a sparkling cranberry shots that’s perfect for those family gatherings.  Think jello shots!

Brussels sprouts and maple syrup are a great combo, but this recipe doesn’t need it. The craisins are sweet and no additional sweeter is needed.
